Zogby: Romney Running Worse Than McCain in 08

Zogby: Romney Running Worse Than McCain in ‘08 13 Sep 2012 David A. Patten

President Barack Obama received a surprisingly strong bounce after the Democratic National Convention, and now leads GOP challenger Mitt Romney by nearly 6 points according to a new JZ Analytics poll.

The national poll of likely voters shows Obama leading 47.7 percent to 42 percent, and indicates that Romney is not polling well enough among some conservative demographic groups: NASCAR fans, evangelicals, and the so-called “Walmart voters.”

According to JZ Analytics pollster John Zogby, Romney is in a somewhat worse position than GOP nominee Sen. John McCain was at this point in the 2008 campaign.

“Slightly worse, yes,” Zogby says. “But it’s also fair to say that he’s running against an incumbent who is not posting the greatest numbers in the world.”

Some conservative pundits contend Romney should have a substantial lead in light of the nation’s ongoing economic doldrums under Obama.

“That’s the question: Why isn’t Romney leading by 10 [points]?” Zogby says. “We can speculate on the answers, but that’s the right question.”

Zogby says Romney is not running as well as he should among certain voter segments. Romney leads Obama 53 to 37 percent among voters 65 and older, for example. But Zogby says “he’s going to have to do better” to win.

In a possible indication that Romney has yet to seal the deal with the GOP base, Zogby reports lackluster poll numbers among NASCAR voters, evangelicals, and frequent Walmart patrons -- groups that tend to be reliably conservative.

Romney leads Obama 48.4 to 44.6 percent among voters who shop weekly at Walmart. He narrowly trails Obama among self-identified NASCAR fans, 44 percent to 43 percent.

“That’s a number you would never expect to see,” comments Zogby.

You know Nate Silver, right? And how he has an untouchable poll guru status and we shouldn’t even question his predictions? And how he isn’t at all biased, despite allegations from the right?

Well, Zogby was the Nate Silver of 2004. _WAS_.

Zogby is still doing “polling” or is this just a driveby DNC “poll”?

You are correct. Is he a so called christian Arab? A lot who are are completely brainwashed not just intimidated and nosily defend anything a Muslim state does. Zogby became a demorat auxiliary after the Iraq invasion and was always finding poll numbers worse on Bush and the GOP than anyone else. From now until November most polls released for general consumption are cooked to support the rats.

This week (post-DNC) has been the highwater mark of O’s campaign. Four years ago (post-RNC) this was the highwater mark of McCain’s.

Less here than meets the eye.

What are these people smoking? Whatever it is, I want some. I’m sorry—only a completely braindead, insane, clueless, emotionally disturbed, and wholly sick and dysfunctional person would vote for Obama.

Hey Mitt. Make believe that Obama's name is Newt or Rick.

Grow a pair.
